ultimate sacrifice for us. as we transfer this treasure, this island, from the navy back to the city, i hope that all of us will remember the service and sacrifice of every sailor, every marine, living and dead. [applause] and the people who left from here and the people who serve today, risking everything, so that we can celebrate today. that legacy lives on in the young men and women who wear the cloth of this country and who are deployed around the world as we meet here today. when the famous or infamous bates 3 aligning closure process started in 1988, a final result of any individual base closure and transfer could not have hoped for a better ultimate outcome than what has been achieved in treasure island. the navy's charge is to dispose of property in a manner that promotes economic development. that has been done. the transfer of treasure island is a win for san francisco. it is a win for the state of california, a win for the united states navy, and a win for the american taxpayers who paid for this base and all the infrastructure that was here. because of this transfer, the ame

i am advocating for a sensible solution that recognizes that bicyclist use the road differently. we ride to the side whenever possible to allow cars to share the road with us. in the same way, when we slowdown for a stop sign it slows the entire process down four people behind us if we were to be in the middle of the line. i guess what i am concluding is it is important for cyclists to use the road safely and courteously at all times. we should never rolled through a stop sign when it is not our turn. we should never run a red light. we should not be riding on the sidewalk. but the one size fits all enforce every law has the capacity to unfairly address behavior that is not dangerous, such as rolling through a stop sign. i really want to point that out. chairperson mar: thank you. >> good morning, supervisors mar, chu, and maxwell. i am the bicycle advisory commissioner for district 9. i am here to essentially echo what the bike coalition interim director has mentioned, which is the fact that the bike plan itself is a good plan. i know my colleagues and i are really looking forward

blocking the former use. the reeducation of the model for that space merits the permit being granted. also you have consistent uses that have the permit for tables and chairs. the more people you have on the streets, the more the public is present. when you look at the big picture, whatever the history of the hearing, i think that we have they changed context and one that merits the opportunities and it is a very conscientious merchant that will do the right thing. >> i him in opposition. we are on the left side. by putting tables there, that will interfere. without the benches, i would see food, beer, all kinds of things. i'm afraid that i have lost a lot of customers because of the smoking, and allowed music. people are smoking marijuana and other things. i am opposed to that. we are not many here because we have five workers representing them and my customers and my salon has small children and families their. they have put strippers' there and they are selling beer. there is no permit applying. they cannot mix business with smoking and food. thank you very much. i am opposed to that on

education program. we have not had the report presented to us, with the recommendations in the report. we have not had the opportunity to engage the community and our own staff with those recommendations yet. that is one example of major pieces of information we do not yet possess and that we feel are critically important to be able to determine what the process is going to look like. i do not want to sound ambiguous, it is our goal to take that information, to engage the community, and then develop what that time when would look like. i think what is very germane is what superintendent garcia has shared, which is that it must be based on the instructional program rather than the drawing of boundaries. vice president mendoza: how does that look with the schools that have sig, when you want to have community input on the family's fed into those schools? >> those are all interrelated. i believe i used the word braiding. . i am going to use the special education recommendations. the recommendations we are anticipating from our special education audit are going to be extensive and far reachin

commissioner yee: i want us to explore what it would cost. it is hard to ask them to do more buses, but would it make any sense for us to purchase extra time for two hours, and how much would that cost? if you compare that to the average cost of the school bus, we'd be saving money? if we could do an analysis, that would help me. commissioner: i just want to say this. the issue of the frequency of bus lines around school start times, we have three or four new directors, in what i think is that the timeline is too short. planning for the budget crisis, whenever, and their high level discussions about long-term planning. i would tell you that this would be framed in the context of transit first. if you want people to choose their schools, taking kids to school by car and maximizing public transportation, they're going to have to be planning years and years out to change generally all of the bus routes or only some. to change the frequency. because changing the frequency of buses, this is what i mean. they have built in a lot of very frequent bus routes and 5:00 in the afternoon but n

corridor years after the special use district was in effect, they decided that rather than honoring the law and the planning code of the city requiring that they provide housing at a rate of three-to-one on the corridor, profit matters most. instead of making sure that one of the few hospitals that serves the southeast sector of the city is sustainable with mixed services for neighborhoods with the highest concentration of youth and profitable, instead profit is the most important. instead of engaging in honest open discussion about alternative 3a, they reject it because profit is most importantly. bernal heights neighborhood center and the coalition of san francisco demands that equitable healthcare access be mandated where 100% of the developer's obligation of the existing code, particularly that in the van ness special use district be met and st. luke's be rebuilt to its current licensed 270 bed capacity at a minimum so it can be around for another 100 years to continue to serve san francisco's working class neighborhoods. keep in mind that cpmc made $150 million last year. it's time
